Well, NikkiZ is in her crib right now. Sleeping. MrZ was not able to feed her a bottle, she just wouldn’t take it from him. So, I nursed her while rocking (instead of while in bed) and then laid her in her crib. I am watching/listening to the baby monitor for any sign of her waking. The unfortunate thing? Her room is next to the laundry room where I have laundry being dried. When I first heard the sounds of LilZ’s cargo shorts bouncing around the dryer? I rushed into NikkiZ room where I had become convinced in 2.3 seconds that she was shaking the sides of her crib and it was about to collapse into a pile of death and rubble.
Nope. Still sleeping. Just buckles on shorts in a dryer.
It’s like having a newborn all over again. I keep having to check on her to make sure she’s still alive. I’m starting to second guess the height of the crib since she’s recently started pulling up. Is it low enough to keep her from flipping herself over the side? What about the bumper pads, is she too young for them? But if they arent there and she sleep-crawls, she could hurt her head without them. Is she warm enough? Is it okay I gave her a blanket? Will she contract the bird flue while unprotected in her room? What about teen pregnancy, should I have the talk with her? Does she understand to say “no” to drugs? HOW AM I GOING TO AFFORD COLLEGE FOR HER?
